This is what I do:
In 2008 I decided to do three new things with my life.
1. Pursue a law degree at Osgoode Hall
2. Find my dream companion my dog named Lux
3. Found my own real estate firm called it Lux Equity (get it?)
The journey to today is a long story.
Today I am the founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) at Lux Equity, a privately held fund that owns various commercial assets in the real estate industry. We are steadily growing and focusing on the intersection between health care and real estate.
I have had many experiences in television. I was a Television Producer and Director at CBC Newsworld. I later ran the news division at MUCHMusic.
I started my television career at the Canadian institution Street Cents.
During my time there we won an Emmy award and captured the Gemini Award for Best Children's Series.
In my spare time, I teach public speaking. I have taught the Dale
Carnegie Leadership Training program in Toronto and Calgary.
I also love speaking at different schools. Here is a list of my latest talks.
I paint in my spare time.
